🥕"Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food" 🌽 is a slogan that makes so much sense. (I'm saving "No Farms, No Food" for another post.) ⁠Here's my take on it...⁠

Building a relationship with the people who grow our food leads to a deeper connection with the food on our plates. ⁠

This photo of one assortment in our weekly farm box from @denisonfarm shows what you might receive by subscribing to a CSA program (CSA=community-supported agriculture) with a nearby farm. Some CSAs let you pick your own produce (which gives you control over what you get); others provide it to you pre-boxed (which will diversify what you eat). 👏🏿⁠ 👏 👏🏼⁠

There are CSA arrangements that run year-round or in different seasons. Usually, they'll preview the week's share with some sort of email to participants, letting you know what's going on at the farm and giving recipe ideas. It's a great business and human relationship, with your upfront, pre-season payment helping the farm to then grow food for you all season long. ⁠

If you are trying to put more plant-based foods on your plate, take a look in your local area...what nearby farms offer CSA? If you are in Saratoga, I can recommend a few options for you. If not, Google or ask at your local farmers' market. This is a super way to eat locally grown food and support American farmers. 💚
